Upon hearing that, I was enlightened though the heart was a little down that day. How wise of my wife! Changing our beliefs - the internal system that is invisible is much more important than changing our outward behaviour or actions. Once our internal thought processes are changed, our actions will correspond with it naturally. On the other hand, if we attempt to change only the outward behaviour, the effect is temporary and often the participant experienced withdrawal symptom and soon return to his usual/old way of doing things.
We are creatures of habits and thus we are also creatures of our own circumstances.
To change our circumstances - health in this aspect, we must take a step back and study our daily habits. An intervention must occur to disrupt the usual patterns. Jumping on the bandwagon of dieting and aggressive exercise is not the answer though it may offer some consolation to the long suppressed guilt, anger, envy, frustration and many more hidden emotions underneath.
IF you have a chance to step in one of this above, which one will you choose?
